With Ryan out of town the past few days- and me still in major catch-up mode, I've been pretty straight-faced and just plain grumpy. Getting on the kids to HURRY UP, to PICK UP THOSE SHOES, to FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS. Maybe a little necessary... lots of to-do's on my plate, lots of homework on theirs.
But, really, I need to lay off a bit, and LIGHTEN UP. Put a little silly back into our step. A little creativity in our paths. Last night, the kids and I watched the Princess Bride. A perfect way to begin the 'lightening up' process. How can one not feel a little giddy while viewing this masterpiece?? Now that Ryan's home, we've decided we must watch it again... along with our annual Young Frankenstein viewing, and bits and pieces of the four Charlie Chaplin films that Jacob rented from the library (love how he gets all into his costume).
That should get us off to a good start- and ready for the big day of pumpkin carving, costume wearing, trick-or-treating, cornbread, & chile! Between the pumpkin patch and Trader Joe's, we're all stocked up :).
Happy Friday everyone!
